Tefu: There is no Dikwena hoodoo

Johannesburg - Tefu Mashamaite sees the upcoming MTN8 semi-final (first leg) against Platinum Stars as the same assignment, just a matter of carrying a different suitcase.

The Kaizer Chiefs defender says that they will go out and continue to keep up the momentum which they have started the campaign with.

“We have to mentally stay switched on in order to maintain this momentum we are building,” said Mashamaite to the Chiefs website.

“Three wins in a row but it’s still too early to read anything from that. The only thing to read is the importance of making sure our heads are firmly on our shoulders.”

Mashamaite has rubbished any ideas that Dikwena is Amakhosi’s hoodoo team.

“The hoodoo status is a media invention and the biggest favour we can do is not to read too much into it, period.”

“We will approach the two legged game just like any other game. Nothing more and nothing less. We still apply ourselves the same way we would like in any other game,” said the fired up 29-year-old.

Kick-off for the much anticipated clash at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Stadium is at 20:15 on Saturday, August 16.

The other semi-final game is on Sunday, when Bidvest Wits host Orlando Pirates at the Bidvest Stadium.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
